I don't think anybody is saying he needs an expensive machine but my point is the good inexpensive 1000 dollar and under machines have all but disappeared where I am at. I scan area dealer lists frequently and I can only think of one flail chopper listed which is fairly new therefore much much higher than 1000 dollars. Other than that there is only one other which I suspect is a parts machine as it is sitting in this guy's parts machine part of the yard. If somebody said to me I need a flail chopper for 1500 dollars or less and preferably under 1000 dollars for this summer I would say be prepared to travel a few hours and be flexible on the brand. It might be different elsewhere in the US.

The ones that were saying that is the ones that were saying he needs the new Deeres. I was saying that any inexpincve machine in good condition should be good for him and also the way he was talking he did not need or want high capacity. That is why I said get what will work now when you need it and spend the next year looking for the ideal machine and that New Holland may not be the ideal but if it works and he doesn't have to buy a load of hay it has paid for itself if it is never used again.

I think I'd rather buy a load of hay than a 718 NH...
My point is that the smaller cut and blow choppers are just as inexpensive as the 718 most times... and they're better machines. Availability of each varies. You can seldom buy any of them when you need one.

The way you talk a lot of machinery aviability up there where you are is good but down here in the states some of it never was heard of. Like all those newer ones you mention.

Newer? That stuff is all old washed up junk here now. There's lots of newer versions of those models still sold today... but cripes.. the 3940/60 are closing in on 40. Even the 50/70 series machines are 25 plus years old. It's not that I'm in the center of the universe for used farm gear either. We get two consignment sales a year with the odd dispersal here and there..

The most popular chopper ever around here was the orignal direct cut bar cut Allis Chalmers, Then Gehl became popular. Don't ever remember seeing a McCormick chopper at all and no Deere as new as any of those you think are old. This used to be dairy country but now only a handful left.
